MetaFilter's Kickstarter PageA Kickstarter campaign from MeFite symbebekos

MetaFilter members are a talented, creative lot and when they have big projects in need of fundraising they often go to Kickstarter. For the past year or so we've been running the MetaFilter-curated Kickstarter page, showing off all current and successful past projects from MetaFilter members. This page is open to any member of MetaFilter with an active project at Kickstarter. Just contact us to share your KS url and we'll get it added to the page lickety split.
